I've used the scythes of the emperor decals from BOLS, and they look great as well. Just need to apply them. Gits if you don't want to mess with printing them out, there's a guy on eBay that will do it for you. He printed mine for me .

In due time. I have a bit of a distraction going on right now. Once that is over I'm going to get back to work on some larger pieces. I have great plans for a refinery. Or a swamp sump. Or a road system. Or a Trading Post.

Or a squirrel.

Up next we have large RC decal on the rhino, with weathering.





I added smaller ones to more shoulder pads. I have about 10 marines left to go.

Looks like you did some of the lighter weathering with an airbrush & some with a paint brush... is that correct?

Not disappointed at all, just trying to figure out how you got the soft edges on some of your yellows around the chipping.

The Rhino is looking excellent! I love the battle damage a lot, great job with it. I need to learn that technique, it's worth learning.

Thanks, It's pretty simple to do. I posted a video of the tutorial I found on page 18.

As for update I sorry to report It will be on hold until after the holidays. I had to pack my stuff in 3 weeks ago to make space. I might get my painting room back mid January.

Happy New year, guys!

My new years resolution is to finally play a real game of 6th ed. I hoping to get at least one game a month again. I cant wait to get back in

Over the holidays, I played a game with my nephew. I fogot alot and kept making mistakes. My nephew seemed disintrested in the game. Or attention span of kids nowadays completely gone. During my turns he would turn on his 3DS and play or run around the basement or roll on the floor. He's 11?!

I used Space Wolves He had Chaos. I found it hard to kill 2 defilers? normally they drop in the first 2 turns. I was wiping him out near th end and he was getting more discouraged. So I kinda through the game. I had 8 points, he had 4. I told him all he needs was to recapture the relic to win. I had the relic in a rhino and I could have kept it moving. but instead I pulled them out and let him assault them. the last turn he wiped out the unit and captured the relic for the win. He said he had fun and liked it. But I found it difficult to keep him focused.

i hope to be ready by the end of the month and get a game in.

Happens. Kids that age are often (now always) really focused on winning. When I play my kids, I usually give them a significant point handicap so I can really play, but the odds are good that they will ultimately prevail. It's good practice to play vs. armies that out point you... teaches you to be creative in the face of long odds.

it was funny, for xmas he got the board game "Risk". I asked him if he ever played it before. He responded " Yup, I played it on the computer. I like it. But i dont like the manual game!" I nearly died laughing. He likes the video game but hates the board game because you have to play it manually. Reminded me of back to the furture 2

Hey Red Corsairs Watchers I got an update for ya.

So holidays are over and I cleaned up my painting room a little and I have enough space to paint and painting I did! I got a few marines painted to about 90% in 2 days. If I can keep this up I could finish my army in a month or two . Kidding aside it would be nice to get in a game soon and I like to have a painted army. or at least an army that has arms and heads.

Bring on the pics!! (used my camera phone, Sorry)

My first mostly finished Missle Launcher only 14 to go



Grey Hunter marine. Its been a while since I've painted helmets. I like the glow of the ML over this one. Trial and error



And we got here a Wolf Guard. and another attempt at blond hair. I painted this face about 2 years ago and hated it. but the hair kinda brought it together.



and.....

with arms



C&C welcome

Love the way those guys look Styro. The shine on the armor looks fantastic with the two-tone color... adds a whole third dynamic.

Thanks gits. I still cant see the air brush shading of the red in any of these pictures. The red still looks flat. oh well
not sure what to do about that. I gave them an extreme edge highlighting and even in some areas that is hidden

Might be the angle of the photo. I notice that my most obvious transition is dead-on from the side... yet I hardly ever take pictures from that angle. How do they look in-person?

Here is a blow-up of the ML shoulder pad.


If you look closely you can see the transitions. But only if you really look, its just really smooth and and looks like the light is top down

The bottom of the shoulder pad The shadow is not real, but painted. The shadow is air brushed Black/red. The light source is coming from behind the camera. You can see a hot spot on the helmet and elbow. The mid colour is Blood Red/red gore mix and the top hightlight is pure blood red. you cant see that transition at all. Then I line highlighted it with 3:1:1 Firey Orange:Blood Red:Skull White and it really pops out and cartooney. Everything else gives the illusion that they light is top down... so i guess I did a great job but no one can see it lol

All you see is the flat red. I'll take a pic upside down

If you can make the gradient so "invisible" that it all looks like natural light effets... you can pretty much teach a class on the technique. Nicely done Styro.

So I made a really bad video where you can see the transition of the shadow to highlight.

OK, so you have a good gradient, it's just burried down below the areas that are visible when the model is sitting flat. There is a rather simple solution... increase the angle at which the lighter colors are sprayed so the gradient is visible further up the model.

Those are fantastic Styro!
I'm also loving the decals of the RC fist, I know from experience it is a real pain to paint on shoulder pads but you've added something simple and it makes them look so more unified.
Keep up the good work!
